Dara Carrillo, is a trained positive psychology certified coach, a true believer in limitless possibilities, a perpetual seeker of knowledge and is actively committed to living a life of wonder, gratitude and service. Do you question your ability to master new or challenging situations? Dara understands all too well the exhausting reality of self-doubt that thwarts dynamic decision making, forward action, self-confidence, and feelings of power over one’s life. Wouldn't it be incredible if you could unearth your sense of wonder and the genius in you that has been suppressed for far too long?
Dara transcended her fear of happiness amidst her everlasting quest for self-mastery. Central to this realization was the discovery and employment of her core values and top strengths that became the driving force for her to lead more confidently and to pursue her dreams. She is a creative thinker, patient listener, and open-minded collaborator. Dara’s superpower is a fusion of expanding awareness beyond what is presently known; thinking of new and innovative ways to approach situations; and deconstructing and conceptualizing information to produce cohesive plans that move her clients toward greater happiness and success. Her charismatic and inquisitive persona gives rise to thought provoking, solution-oriented and resourceful coach-client environments, transforming the possible into the viable.
Dara’s original concept of Muse Stream emerged when she recognized that she was not alone in her struggle to internalize and communicate her value. Mending her fractured experience of self through the identification and internalization of her strengths and values, revealed her passion to coach others toward elevated self-efficacy and self-value. With this new realization, 2013 developed into her breakthrough year when Dara became the only coach, amongst more than 40 coaches, to specialize in personal branding at The University of Texas-Austin MBA+Leadership Program. In 2014, Dara partnered with a fellow St. Edward’s University alum to co-design a curriculum that has benefited over 1,000 individuals at the local, national and international level.
Dara was born and reared in south Texas and now lives in Austin, Texas with her fiancé, where you might find them playing tennis, disc golf or hiking in one of the many beautiful parks around Austin.
